Sophistication and Ingenious are perhaps the two most synonymous words with Škoda. Ever since its inception, Škoda has been focusing on enhancing the joy of mobility with new inventions and the simply clever persona. Over time, as the world endeavoured to walk the greener road, Škoda joined the bandwagon too by technologically evolving the cars to meet the pollution-control guidelines.
Therefore, in April 2020 when the BS-VI or Bharat Stage VI norm was implemented in India, the Czech automaker Škoda launched a new BS-VI engine which is fuel-efficient and releases cleaner emissions, to comply with the Indian government’s guidelines.
Following are all the Škoda models available with a BS-VI engine:
The BS-VI Škoda Rapid is a charming sedan with a classic design and a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine under the hood. This upgrade from BS-IV to BS-VI affects the performance of the car in a rather positive manner as it improves the power delivery. The 3-cylinder turbo-petrol engine does a good job of delivering 110bhp. Moreover, it is mated to a 6-speed manual/automatic transmission.
However, that is not only what makes Škoda Rapid TSI an elegant car. It's the inclusion of advanced features, luxurious interiors and a timeless design that assigns Škoda Rapid its accurate description. Its solid build quality, ergonomically designed interiors and a steering wheel that’s neither too light nor too heavy. It’s a beautiful symphony of multiple avant-garde elements that would win any car enthusiast's heart in one drive.
The next on the list is Škoda Kushaq which is nothing less than a feather on Škoda’s cap. This compact SUV is a gem of a product that stands strong among all its competitors. Škoda Kushaq gets a couple of modern, dynamic and efficient engine variants, both of which are super refined and BS-VI compliant. The 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine generates max power of 115ps while the more powerful 1.5-litre 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine generates about 150hp.
However, the reasons to marvel at this King of a car don’t end here. Škoda Kushaq gives you enough transmission choices to make sure you get exactly what you need. It comes with not 2 or 3 but 4 transmissions to choose from. Moreover, Škoda Kushaq is a popular conversation-starter among Škoda-lovers for it is a work of sheer brilliance – a car manufactured in India for India.
Škoda Octavia is one of the best-selling cars of Škoda. In 2020, this premium ride got a little greener with a new BS-VI engine. Holding on to the legacy of 1959 Octavia, the 4th generation model lays out a mature and elegant design. Škoda Octavia is powered by a potent 2.0 litre 4-cylinder TSI engine that generates an impressive 190 PS and delights with its refinement.
Škoda Octavia comes with the first-ever ‘shift by wire’ technology and electric parking brake. The DSG shift by wire is controlled by a shift lever integrated into the centre console. In addition to that, Škoda Octavia is righteously loaded to the brim with smart technology and engineered to offer high performance.
After the discontinuation of the BS-IV Škoda Superb, this car made a comeback in 2020 with a refreshed look and a BS-VI engine. Škoda Superb blurs the line between beauty and functionality. Although, it’s not just the looks that got an upgrade in this car. The most prominent upgrade lies under the hood of Škoda Superb as it now comes with a 2.0L TSI petrol engine. This powerful engine mated to a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox produces 190hp.
Škoda Superb truly earns its name through its amalgamation of sophistication and sporty. The rousing display of elegance and precision is evident in its looks as well as performance.
Conclusively, Škoda’s range of cars might feature distinct elements in terms of powertrain, interiors and several other aspects. However, one common element that finds its place in every Škoda car is ‘Simply Clever’ thinking. Set on manufacturing elegant cars that are fun to drive, Škoda never fails to showcase the forward-thinking approach of the brand. Moreover, the BS-VI advancement in the engines of Škoda cars add plenty of buying points to its ledger, making the future of Škoda promising in India.
